Solitude Standing (1987)[edit]

I am sitting in the morning
at the diner on the corner
I am waiting at the counter
for the man to pour the coffee
  • I am sitting in the morning
    at the diner on the corner

    I am waiting at the counter
    for the man to pour the coffee
    and he fills it only halfway
    and before I even argue
    he is looking out the window
    at somebody coming in.

  • I open up the paper,
    there's the story of an actor
    who had died while he was drinking,
    it was no one I had heard of.

    I live on the second floor.
    I live upstairs from you.
    Yes, I think you've seen me before.

  • If you hear something late at night,
    Some kind of trouble, some kind of fight,
    Just don't ask me what it was.

    After that, you don't ask why.
    • Luka
